Ice Age Adventures review – A surprisingly decent universal game for Windows Phone and Windows 8

22

Back when Xbox games for Windows Phone were more of a thing, Gameloft published a free to play city building game called Ice Age Village. That particular genre is mostly worthless, but many of us suffered through it any way for the Achievements. I do mean suffered, because Ice Age Village is a buggy game and the Windows Phone version was never updated with bug fixes or new content.

One year later, Gameloft brings a sequel called Ice Age Adventures to Windows Phone and Windows 8 and RT. The new game is still technically a free to play city builder, but vastly improved production values (Hello, voice acting!) and several design changes make for a much more enjoyable experience. Will it hold gamers' attentions without Achievements, though? Yeah, if you can tolerate the IAP mechanics, you'll probably have a bit of fun with it.

Surface Pro 3 receives new firmware update today for WiFi connectivity and more

70

If you are one of the lucky people running a Surface Pro 3, you will want to head into Settings > Update and recovery to check for new updates today. Besides the usual slew of security and x64 patches for the OS, a new firmware update is also being distributed. Firmware is the essential feature to make the hardware and OS work better together, meaning they tend to fix bugs, improve performance, and optimize the user experience.

Microsoft has published the specific changes to this firmware, which is on a rolling basis (meaning you may not see it right away). Here is what is new.

This is what a WPCentral custom ColorWare Xbox One Controller looks like (and you can have one too)

69

Last month we reviewed a custom Xbox One controller from UK-based service Controller Modz. That service offers a variety of sexy hydro-dipped artwork and chrome designs for Xbox One controllers, but nothing in the way of solid colors. For a controller customized with solid colors, we looked to ColorWare – located in Minnesota and recommended by some of our readers.

ColorWare allows customers to customize an Xbox One controller with one or two solid colors of their choice. The controller will then be painted with your design. In order to test the quality of the ColorWare service, I threw together a design of my own. The result is the world's first Windows Phone Central-colored Xbox One controller! Read on for full impressions of the ColorWare Xbox One controller design process and finished product, with video!

Celebrating 15 Years of Mobile Nations!

540

On September 9th, 1999, the origin story for Mobile Nations began when VisorCentral launched from my student apartment at University of Florida. Immediately the website became a fixture of the Handspring Visor online community by delivering high quality and reliable news, articles, reviews, and an active forum.

While today the Visor is a relic — I'm sure many of our younger readers have never even heard of it before — 15 years later we are stronger than ever delivering the same experience that made VisorCentral a success. Over the years we have navigated the many shifts in mobile platforms, and today Mobile Nations reaches over 32 million readers every month through Android Central, iMore, WPCentral, CrackBerry and our newest site, Connectedly.

While the puzzle collection doesn't have many bells and whistles, it makes up for things by offering challenging, head-scratching puzzles. The game is initially free with plenty of puzzle levels and questions to solve. Once you're done with the free puzzles, additional questions and difficulties are available through in-app purchase.

Available for low-memory devices, while there is some room for improvement, Smart Games is a nice collection of puzzle games to pass the time with.
